Experience You Can Trust
A. John Hodgins Barrister
An experienced Family Law Lawyer will be able to provide you with the essential information and guidance you need to allow you to decide how best to proceed in your special circumstances, and to try and minimize the chances of yours becoming “the separation or divorce from hell”.
Your choice should be a lawyer who deals in family law on a day-to-day basis. Someone who spends time in court. Someone who is up-to-speed in the ever-changing world of family law
We all have friends, relatives or co-workers who have been through separation and/or divorce. Statistics show that as many as one in two adults will suffer through this experience at least once during their lifetime.
Many complex and emotionally-charged issues are involved. Who gets the house, kids, car, TV, debts, etc.? Must one party pay the other child and/or spousal support, and if so, how much and for how long? What happens to the home, cottage, pensions, stock portfolios, businesses?
Where can you turn to obtain expert advice and assistance from someone who has an intimate knowledge of the ever-changing federal and provincial laws in the area, and the interpretations placed on those laws by the courts? Someone who can help you?
Every separation/divorce involves a different set of facts and circumstances, and different aspects of the law apply as a result. Just as no two people are exactly alike, so too no two separations/divorces are alike.
With difficult decisions to be made which will affect you and your family for the rest of your lives, don’t you deserve expert, up-to-the-minute advice from a professional? Can you afford anything less? Of course not.
Whether it is by way of negotiation to attempt to obtain a Separation Agreement, or via a Court application, and/or motion before a Judge, with over twenty six years of experience practicing in the area of Family Law, I can assist you.
